The London Underground has been taken over by photos of cats

KUSA - It's likely every cat-lover's dream to walk into a subway station and be surrounded by cat photos instead of advertisements.

An organization called The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS, for short) started a Kickstarter campaign to do just that -- replace every advertisement in a London Underground station with pictures of cats.

The organization says they are doing this for several reasons:

  • "It would look amazing."
  • "It's exhausting being asked to buy stuff all the time."
  • "We can help lost cats find homes."
  • "Wouldn’t it be great not to worry about the holiday we can't afford, the car we don’t need, or the body we don’t have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel 'pawsitive.'"

The Kickstarter campaign has surpassed its goal and raised nearly 23,131 British Pounds, or $30,505.

Many of the cats featured in the images are from Cats Protection, a feline welfare charity in the UK.

 

The Clapham Common station, located in south London, is the first to be decked-out in felines. The pictures will be up for nearly three weeks.

CATS says they aren't trying to sell anything, but want to help people think differently by making positive social change.
